Does This Tire Fit?

The ExtremeContact DWS 06 (DWS for Dry, Wet & Snow) is Continental's Ultra High Performance All-Season radial developed for drivers of sports cars, sports coupes, performance sedans and sport trucks. Designed to satisfy year-round driving needs, ExtremeContact DWS 06 tires blend dry and wet road performance with wintertime slush and snow traction.

ExtremeContact DWS 06 tires feature Continental's SportPlus Technology, which combines enhanced handling, wet traction and wear. An advanced silica-enhanced all-season tread compound featuring +Silane additives increase wet grip and extend treadlife. This compound is molded into a unique asymmetrical tread design featuring Continental's Chamfered Edges that help deliver maximum tread contact in dry conditions while Traction Grooves (ridges in the bottom of the tread grooves) enhance three-dimensional snow traction. Outboard shoulder macro blocks enhance responsiveness and cornering stability. Central independent blocks with X-sipes, separated by high-angle, crisscross grooves provide the biting edges necessary to promote all-direction traction on wet roads and in light snow. Independent inboard shoulder blocks help disperse water to further hydroplaning resistance and foul-weather traction.

ExtremeContact DWS 06 tires feature QuickView indicators to help identify vehicle misalignment concerns early in the tire's life before wear patterns form, as well as confirm suitability for different driving condition through Tuned Performance Indicators. Tuned Performance Indicators are visible letters molded into the second rib from the outboard shoulder to alert drivers of the tire's performance levels. A visible "DWS" indicates the tire has appropriate tread depth for dry conditions, as well as wet roads and snow. After the "S" has worn away, the remaining "DW" indicates the tire only has appropriate tread depth for dry and most wet road conditions. And after the "W" and "S" have both worn away, the remaining "D" indicates the tire has appropriate tread depth for dry conditions only.

The tire's internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound jointless nylon cap plies to provide long-term integrity under high-speed conditions while reducing weight and helping to provide more uniform ride quality.

I really like this tire, and I would recommend it if not for the poor treadwear. I use it as a 3-season tire, so I haven't tried it on ice or snow. Good grip, dry or wet, in warm or cold conditions. Good ride/handling balance. Rolling resistance is lower than the stock Dunlop summer tires they replaced. The tread has worn 2/32" after only 6800km. I expect I'll be down to the wear bars at around 25,000km, which is really poor for a tire with a 560 treadwear rating. I rarely drive my car aggessively.

These tires are notorious for getting flat spots when sitting for several days. If you are driving vehicle every day, I would guess that these tires would perform to expectations. Handling is fair with very little steering feedback. Aggressive cornering is not as confident as the competition. Will be going back to Michelin (Pilot Super Sport).

Best all around tire I've ever owned in 30 years. We are undergoing a relative hard winter and the tires have shined in snow and ice. In the summer they did not show any faults. Treadwear is a bit unknown as they are still pretty new but not expecting anything out of the ordinary. Highly recommend.

For Calgary year round driving you can not beat this tire. No other all season ultra high performance tire even compares to the DWS for winter driving and is comparable with all the top brands for dry and wet conditions. with it's 540 tread-ware life the DWS is a no brainer decision. Fantastic tire and I highly recommend it. :)

Not recommended for snow drive, really can't control it in any kind of snow.
